My name is Stefanie, and I knit sweaters for kids and babies. My shop is called Yellow House Knits. I live with my sweet dog, Arrow, in Washington, D.C.

I learned how to knit when I was a little girl, but I didn’t pick it up in earnest until my mid-20s, when I was looking for an activity to help justify my TV habit. I started knitting baby sweaters as gifts for my friends when they were all suddenly expecting at the same time; when those friends had all made it through round one and I found myself without any more moms-to-be in my social circle, I started my shop.

I’m constantly scanning for colors, patterns and designs that excite me, and my phone is jam-packed with snapshots of buildings, gardens, paintings, and everyday objects that have spoken to me in some way. I begin every new sweater with a fairly defined vision, but I almost always make changes as I’m working. Sometimes the changes are small tweaks, and other times they’re major overhauls.

My tiny row house does not afford space for a dedicated studio, which means I have projects and supplies tucked into corners all over my house. I have a hard time sitting still, so I almost always have my yarn and needles with me. On any given day, I’m likely knitting in a park, on the train, or even at the movies (yes, in the dark!).

Selling on Etsy has introduced me to so many lovely people. When clients tell me they’re ordering a sweater for their new grandbaby or godchild, it’s the greatest compliment ever: I feel like they’re inviting me into their lives to share in their important moments, and I want to help them celebrate. I have so many design ideas bouncing around in my head; in the future, I’d like to try to bring more of them to fruition.
